Sure, July and August count.
I don't miss winter one bit. I always gained a lot of weight, got out of shape, stared at the TV for hours and frankly got really bummed out.
Moving here was an intentional life overhaul, and 6 years later, it's still in progress. I'm becoming more and more Californian all the time. But my friends still make fun of my Hoosier accent.
BACK ON TOPIC: Just saw episode 8 of The Pacific. This episode was an absolutely masterful display of storytelling. You have to stick through it, I can see how most of the episode would be considered somewhat boring but believe me, there's a payoff.
